Letter to the Editor: The Warmth of a Mother’s Heart

By Anthony Gracia

The warmth of a mother’s heart;

Keeps you warm in the coldest of night.

The warmth of a mother’s heart;

Will last forever and a while.

The sparkle in a mother’s eyes;

Will keep you going when you get tired of trying.

The warmth of a mother’s voice;

A beautiful sound to rejoice.

The warmth of a mother’s love, is unconditional

with a hug can only come from heaven above.

The warmth of a mother’s face;

Will always let you know that you’re in the right place.

The warmth of a mother’s love;

Will always be with you to warm your heart.

Mom is the hub of true family love. She has more love in her heart than all of us brothers and sisters put together. True family love will always exist because of our beautiful mothers’ heart. Always find time to share the warmth of your heart with the ones you love

A night of fashion, music, and bringing awareness to DIABETES is WHAT IT DO! What a turn out this past Sunday; the house was packed! The event was hosted by singer, rapper, and comedian, Lorie Moore. This crazy lady had me and the entire room in stiches. She most definitely kept the audience engaged with her classy ratchetness, as she calls it. The beautiful, Dr. Tracy Lynn spoke about her experiences as a diabetic and how important it is to get tested and the headliner of the night, Annette Royale performed a few sons off her “Hurt Wins” album where she captivated the audience with her amazing vocals.

The evening continued with live performances provided by Inland Empire Rap Artist Young Stress, R-n-B Singer Sophia Mojo, Female Emcee S. Hollywood, and Christian Rappers The Turn up Bros. Featured Designers consisted of Trisha Sherman specializing in custom made items, Mrs. J and Fancy Nancy specializing in jewelry, Angie Escobar designer from Riverside showcasing her fall collection, and Morgan of Fontana with Strictly Designs. All the models slayed the runway. I have to give love to my girls, models Krystal Yvonne, Ayanna Eubank and Brittnay Shearz for participating in a worthy cause.

The vibe was dope! I love when an event starts and ends on time. The venue was beautifully decorated in classic black and white with sounds provided by DJ B Right. You can tell that everyone enjoyed the show. A classy affair indeed! Major shout out to Tata Hollins, Jamal pmp Park, and the entire production team. Looking forward to the next one!

Until next week L’z!’
